Welcome to Fun Camp!

The Rec/IM Department at EMU is offering an exciting opportunity for your child/children to participate in a multi-dimensional day camp designed to promote friendship and fun!

We are fortunate to be affiliated with a campus that offers a variety of resources to tap into as we plan our program. Campers will participate in groups with children of similar ages. Activities will be programmed to accommodate the interests and skill levels of each group. All children will have opportunities to interact together each day. 


Children ages 7 (or entering 2nd grade in the fall) through 12 (at the time of registration) .


Fun camp is managed by the Rec/IM. The counselors are EMU students who are passionate about working with children and are studying education, recreation or other related degree programs.

Parents enrolling their child should send them with a lunch and a daily snack everyday. 

PLEASE SEND YOUR CHILD WITH A WATER BOTTLE EVERY DAY! They can fill their water bottles at water stations when necessary.


Comfortable play clothes and shoes, swimsuit and towel. Shoes should be running shoes or sandals with a heel strap. If your child desires to wear flip-flops or sandals without straps, please make sure they have another set of safe shoes for active games and activities.

Swim Lessons

A unique feature of our Fun Camp experience is swim lessons. Campers will receive swim lessons one day each week and enjoy free swim every afternoon. They are sure to acquire lifelong aquatic skills. A swimsuit and towel are required for each camper.

Special Notes

If your child is under seven years of age, please contact the EMU Children's Institute at 734.487.2348 for information regarding their Flights of Imagination Program.
